Valdemar Vilhelm Louis Alexandre (Known as Valdemar I) is the reigning king of Vendsyssel.
Valdemar was born on June 26th, 1991 at Hjørring Sygehus. His father Vilhelm is a retired soldier from the Danish Royal Navy, and now a volunteer in the Danish Homeguard. His mother Sigrid is working for the danish government with bilingual children. He also has an older sister, Josephine, who works for the danish government in the economic area.
He was born and raised in Hjørring, Vendsyssel with only a few exceptions, most notably a 4-year period in the town of Esbjerg in Sourthern Denmark.
Valdemar attended the danish "folkeskole", and afterwards continued to get an STX-degree at "Hjørring Gymnasium and HF-kursus". After the STX he got a vocational secondary education within the business area. He then attended City of Glasgow College in Scotland in which he studied event organisation, project managementand courses relating to that area. Later he decided to study for a bachelor in sport & event management, however he dropped out after a year to embark on his military career.
Valdemar's military career got a rocky start. He joined the danish army in 2012 as a voluntary conscript, but was medically discharged after picking up a shoulder injury. After a period of rehabilitation he joined again as a conscript in February 2015. After 4-month of basic training he once again went out in the civilian world. He then joined the Army NCO-school in April 2016 and graduated to become a sergeant (OR-5), with specialisation in logistics. He then went on to join the lieutenant-school, which he graduated in the summer of 2017, thus advancing to Second Lieutenant with the command of a platoon of conscripts. After a year of service he got promoted to Lieutenant (OR-1). As of now he is working as an education officer in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear warfare-company.
He is set on joining the Army Officer-school in either 2020 or 2021 to further advance his career.
Vendsyssel Armed forces
As regent of Vendsyssel he is the commander-in-chief of the Vendsyssel Armed Forces and thus holding the rank of Field Marshal.
Valdemar assumed regency when he formally established the Kingdom of Vendsyssel on 13th of December 2018. Kingdom of Vendsyssel has not shown much growth during the start of the Valdemars reign. Since the king is heavily focused on his military career, the progress is slow, however steady. Thus his reign is for now mostly characterized by him trying to lay the foundation to the Kingdom, working out formalia, writing pages and getting the information out to the world.
